CMJ Week/Friendly Fires (A.K.A. Secret Magnetic Fields Live Post)

Every CMJ I witness at least one band that is under the assumption that this is their big break and therefore performing with a tuned blasé rock posturing meant to endear them to that one label-head in the audience. Friendly Fires came across as such wankers I didn’t bother recording them. I think they would have saved themselves and the audience a lot of trouble by just repeating: “We are the next Vampire Weekend, promise.”

I don’t have a recording to make my point but instead will drop another Magnetic Fields track or two to show that I am a good sport.
